debate prep as he has been a coach of mitt romney, john mccain and president bush, among others. it's interesting that ed henry just shared with us a voter that he talked to in nevada that said, listen, i'm a democrat, but i really am open to a mitt romney as president if i could get some specifics. so how do you get, how does mitt romney get specific without being too wonky, too boring and too rigid? >> well, you know, i think that voter when they say they're looking for specifics, they're looking for governor romney's vision for where he would lead the country and why that vision would be better than the path that we're on right now under president obama. i think if governor romney stays at the, you know, at the visionary level where he offers a better path forward, then i think that'll answer voters' concerns. i don't think he has to get into specific policy. he does need to be able to defend some of the economic policies that he's put forward, but i think he needs to really more than that advance a vision for the country, and the difference in philosophy of the role of government

, nancy pfotenhauer, president of media speaks strategies and former senior policy advisor for john mccain's campaign in 2008. chris comean has, former chief of staff to west virgina senator joe manchin. chris, this president is known for his or tore call skills. he is former law professor. he is a guy who knows the meaning of the words and to say we have had bumps in the road after four americans were killed, isn't that a major misstep? >> well, i mean, listen in fairness to the president what he was saying and when you listen to his words, in particular i think when you listen to his speech today at the united nations he was talking about in the larger context of challenges the country has faced. i know the republicans want to fixate on any potential gaffe to turn around their campaign but this notion somehow you will present or make the president look cold and callous is just not going to happen. the american people are not going to buy that and it is not something that fits into any kind of narrative who the president is. so, listen, i understand this is the game of politics. ha

, he's worked with senator john mccain and president george w. bush. nice to have you on the program. >> good to be with you. jenna: for some of our viewers, how does one become an expert debate coach? did you start out on the debate team in high school? how did you become a coach? >> well, you know, i was in the right place at the right time. i didn't debate until i got to college, and then i decided to make debate a career. i coached for 18 years at liberty university and happened to meet karl rove. i knew that they had, that john kerry was using bob shrum as their debate coach and said to karl rove, you need a debate coach for the president, and he hired me. and that was my first job in politics, was coaching president bush. jenna: fascinating, karl rove surfaces again somewhere out there. >> with the mastermind of all. [laughter] jenna: you know, i didn't ever participate in the debate team. one of the things i did was play sports, and you watch game tape, right? you watch a lot of film. we just showed film of reagan and carter, and i'm curious, do can you as a coach show film, t

: well, and he won 41% in 2008, i don't want to make it sound like he cleaned john mccain's clock, he won 41% which is slightly better than democrats typically do. mary katherine? >> and, jon, that's the thing about these voting blocs that tend to skew either way, women for democrats, men for republicans, is that you only have to peel off a certain number of those voters. and the reason we're talking about this gender gap now and the reason we generally do, the reason we talked about women so intensely for a while is because republicans turned the tide and won women in 2010. and so democrats were concerned about that, and they spent a lot of time messaging on that. the reason we're talking about it now is because as mr. rosenberg says, they're closing that gap a little bit on the left. but a lot of these guys are still hurting really bad. like i said, white male working-class voters hit hard by the economy, 55-28 for romney in a recent study from the public religion research institute. so there's a lot of work to be done, and there's a message to say, hey, look, this is not the new normal

president obama requesting a briefing in washington as soon as possible. senator john mccain, sharply criticizing the administration's initial response to the assault, take a listen. >> the thing that is disturbing about this is the naivete of an absolute fundamental ignorance of warfare. look, this was an attack on its face. the reason why -- heavy weapon, mortars. a well-synchronized direct fire and indirect fire attack. >> our next guest also doesn't feel like he has the full story on this quite yet. republican senator lindsey graham of south carolina joins us. he is on the senate armed services committee. nice to have you in set in person. >> thank you. jenna: go to senator mccain the points he made, the criticism of the administration. how do you think the way this entire situation has been handled is affecting our national security? what is the bigger picture behind this event? >> we can't live with radical islam reining in the middle east. we need to pick sides. there is struggle in libya and throughout the middle east between radical islamists who want to take the word back to

and said, look, i was worried about the performance that john mccain put in four years ago against president obama, and she picks up the question from there. >> will he be forceful in those debates and take it to obama? [cheers and applause] >> ma'am, absolutely. one little difference between then and now. president obama has a record. [laughter] and president obama has a record and a string of broken promises. of course he will. >> reporter: congressman ryan -- sorry -- [cheers and applause] pledging that governor romney will take it to the president next wednesday in denver. no question though, jon, he needs a big move because if you see these polls in the battleground states, he is beginning to lose ground. he needs something big to happen. jon: well, they seem to like the message in the room behind him, is it the vfw hall? >> reporter: yes, it's a legion hall in springfield. jon: legion hall. john roberts, thank you. jenna: the first presidential debate gets underway just six days from now, and the big faceoff comes wednesday in denver. the president will hunker down for three
